still getting up and running here on DW. I hear tell that I can use Semagic with DW, so I plan to do that (which will help with my posting considerably as I love Semagic's ease of use.

I need to figure out how to:

- import all the things from my LJ
- archive my LJ.

suggestions and/or instructions would be grand. I did try using LJArchive but it doesn't seem to want to work for me. thoughts on where I might be going wrong there, or suggestions on if I need to just keep whacking it regularly until it gets the whole thing, are also welcome.

I shan't get up to posting much until after Easter, however.

Do you need to accept the new ToS to import? I know you do to crosspost, which is why I haven't.

Semagic looks interesting. Still being developed? I used to use deepest sender, but it hasn't worked in awhile.

I take that back. It appears to work with Slackware's custom-compiled Firefox.

It's pretty simple to import - there's a tutorial that walks you through it, and it took me less than 5 minutes to set up and about 15 minutes to complete. I had to hand-upload userpics afterwards, and it doesn't capture the pictures embedded in posts, however.

I see someone got to the importer before me. The only thing that I will add is that it will very likely take a while right now. A lot of people are using it, as they are all jumping ship from LJ at once.

From what I'm hearing you may have to accept the new TOS before you can import (ugh), but you can delete your LJ after that.
